Representative Text

1 My heart is over yonder,
My treasure, too, is there,
Where Jesus our Redeemer
Will banish ev’ry care.

Where fadeless flow’rs are blooming,
And perfect joys abide,
My heart is over yonder,
Beyond the swelling tide.

2 No night is over yonder,
No sorrow chills the heart,
And they who pass its portals
Shall meet but never part. [Refrain]

3 My thoughts are over yonder;
How oft in dreams I view
The lovely hills of Canaan,
Its skies of cloudless blue. [Refrain]

4 My friends are over yonder,
They watch and wait for me;
The ties that here were broken
Shall there united be. [Refrain]
